Exactly! They will all flourish afterwards. If it s only burnt the surface it hasn't killed the roots, if it has killed the roots then it's killed the worms.  Worms are very good for a lawn.

Cut the dead flowers off and put in in a pot twice that size, or even better in the garden, it isn't going to  flower next year in that tiny pot. They are not really suitable as houseplants, put it outside, especially if you get rain, it will love it.

I walked down to the bottom of my garden yesterday and found the hydrangeas there just the same, I don't usually dead head/prune back until end of April for that very reason but needed to get on. 

Now I'll have to go over them again and cut the damaged bits off.  Same thing happened a few years ago, that's when I decided to leave cutting back till later, oh well, more haste......πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Its happened to a lot of people this year.

I've not sown mine yet. Next week, hopefully.

 Don't sow cosmos, I've got hundreds of them ready to be pricked out, I'll have to dump them soon. You're very welcome to them. X

Problem with my magnolia

If you had to replace 6 others, it would seem it's a soil problem, nurseries don't usually give you bad plants,  garden centres maybe, but not nurseries. did they do a soil test before planting, they prefer acid soil. I'm sure they must have done, couldn't see a nursery just going ahead with the job, just a thought,
